This third time victory of Narendra Modi led BJP in Gujarat despite all machinations of the Congress particular Ms. Sonia Gandhi and her son, in which the BJP has won almost the same number of seats as in 2007 is a matter of pride for Modi and all patriotic Indians. As for Himachal Pradesh, the outgoing CM Dhumal has already said that the bad choices of candidates was responsible for the relatively worse performance. This means that Congress has nothing to gloat about the party's victory in that small state. They got it by default. In any case Veer Bhadra Singh is not household poodle of Ms. Sonia Gandhi and her son.
Large states such as Bihar, UP and Gujarat having now in just one year rejected the mother- son duo, and given the Congress a triple drubbing at the hustings. It is time therefore for Congress persons to rise in revolt and find a new leadership so that a healthy two party system may develop in the country without foreign and corrupt influence.
